Website Visitor Tracking

This website uses tracking software provided by Google Analytics to monitor visitors in order to better understand how you use it. The software will save a cookie to your computer’s hard drive in order to track and monitor your engagement and usage of the website, but will not store, save or collect personal information.

This site uses only the default settings provided in the standard installation of Google Analytics. This allows details of the page you visited, including its URL and title, and information about the browser you used, such as its name, viewport size, screen resolution and the language in which it operates. Details of your location are included – this is determined by the IP address you’re visiting from, but at no point is your actual IP address made available as that is personally identifiable information that violates Google Analytics’ privacy terms.
